country than this. >> the numbers show that the reality, what president obama called the fundamental threat to the american dream, has been growing increasingly dire for decades. the richest americans have steadily take an bigger share of the country's income. the wealthiest 10% make more than half of all income in the united states. and it hasn't always been this way. just take a look at this chart. for decades what you are seeing there in the '50s through the '70s, in those years the rich earned about 30-some-odd percent of the neigh's income. now the income share of the richest 10% is the highest it's been in at least 100 years. and those initial high points of inequality that you see there on the left when it was nearly as high tz ast today, those were the years leading up to and during the great depression. it's not because americans aren't working hard. hourly wages have slumped along, growing at about 10% since the early '1970s. but the productivity of those workers has increased by 80% pop you see those two lines, productivity and wages? they used to run together in the early
care reform republican style. >> when you look at obama care, what you see is a government-centered health care delivery system. that's not what the american people want. the american people want to pick their own type of insurance, their own doctor, their own hospital. that's what a patient-centered health care system looks like. >> will that be up for a vote in 2014, a plan like that? >> will that be up in 2014? >> we'll see. >> steve schmidt, the guy can't even take the question seriously. the republicans in the house would vote on anything involving health care from their side, an idea from their side. >> it's interesting, one of the founders of the democratic leadership council out with a book today that charts bill clinton's rise to power. when you look at bill clinton coming to power after three disastrous elections where the democratic party was viewed as unelectable by a lot of the country, it was fueled by ideas, by platform, by a vision of where to lead to reinvent the party. and you see the great deficit in those remarks by the speaker that the congressional win

you boil down to any of these safety net programs, they have support from americans across all political aisles. >> right. it's a safety net. >> that's why so many people supported obama care because they believed it was a safety net program when it was a redistribution program. if we focus on the safety net, do it at the state level. we've already got some high risk pools at the state level. if they need more funding, more support or restructuring reform at the state level, conservatives have talked about that for a while and don't get enough credit for. >> lanny davis, i worked for a guy, ronald reagan, he was willing to cut spending but he believed in the safety net. and my mentor, the late jack kemp, always believed in the safety net and helping those who truly couldn't help themselves. i think the republican party have to take that democratic message out because this thing is going to wind up bankrupt -- their plan is going to bankrupt the system and nobody's going to win. gop has to say, here's how we're going to do it, even if it means, heaven forbid, i'm going to say th

. thank you, everybody. god bless you. god bless america. >> that was president obama, who just finished a landmark speech on inequality, economic fairness, and opportunity, speaking in one of the poorest areas of the nation's capital. the president's remarks come at a time when 11.5 million americans cannot find a job and workers' wages have never been lower. at the same time, corporate profits are soaring and the stock market is regularly hitting all-time highs. these disparities have become too stark to ignore, and in his speech, the president issued something of a warning call for the american dream. >> the basic bargain at the heart of our economy has frayed. the idea that so many children are born into poverty in the wealthiest nation on earth is heartbreaking enough. but the idea that a child may never be able to escape that poverty because she lacks a decent education or health care or a community that views her future as their own, that should offend all of us. and it should compel us to action. >> president obama did not introduce any new policies, but he did reiterate his stro
